If that fixes fam10, I'm all for it. My understanding is that failover 
was invented specifically to make fam10 work with only 64kb of available 
ROM, but I might be wrong. That would mean that a bootblock >64kb 
wouldn't be entirely visible.

Either I fix it today, or I'll revert that part of the change. Either 
way it'll work in a couple of hours again.
